Pizza and pancakes, lobster and cheesecake, microbrews and
mango lassi — these are a few of the favorite food items you’ll find at the 2018 Burlington Restaurant Ramble running May 18-27 in Burlington, New Jersey.

Presented by Arts Guild New Jersey, Burlington Restaurant Ramble is a 10-day, two-weekend invitation to sample the top-quality cuisine of 22 area restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, pubs and ice cream parlors.

“We want to introduce visitors across the region to Burlington’s culinary diversity,” says Lawrence McCullough, Arts Guild New Jersey’s executive director. “And after they’ve dined, we know they’ll want to explore our many arts events and history attractions.”

From May 18-27, when a customer makes a food or beverage purchase at a participating Restaurant Ramble eatery, they receive a stamp on a Restaurant Ramble Passport; three stamps from three eateries, and the Passport can be entered into a drawing for prizes. Each restaurant will have its own
specials and discounts throughout the 10 days. There is no limit to how many Passports can be entered.

Prizes include a $500 gift certificate from a local furniture retailer, a full night stay at a Burlington bed-and-breakfast and scores of gift certificates from local jewelers; spas; salons; men’s and women’s clothing stores; antique, craft and photo shops; book and record dealers along with participating restaurants.

There is no separate cost to obtain a Restaurant Ramble Passport, which can be downloaded for free at the Arts Guild New Jersey website www.artsguildnj.org. Links to participating restaurants and their menus are also available on the site.

The 2018 Burlington Restaurant Ramble’s opening weekend coincides with the May 19 Burlington Day One World Festival and 5K Run, a May 20 special workshop by Broadway props and special  effects artist Jennie Marino at Lyceum Hall Center for the Arts, a May 24 Summer Concert on the Waterfront and the annual Memorial Day Parade set for May 28.

“People are eager to visit locales that offer new activities,” says McCullough. “Burlington Restaurant Ramble is a perfect way to do that while enjoying a great eating experience.”
